The Heat: G20 Summit

The G20 summit is an opportunity for leaders from the world’s largest economies to meet in person and discuss some of biggest global challenges. But that didn’t happen this year because of COVID-19 restrictions. Instead, they connected by video link last weekend at a virtual G20 hosted by Saudi Arabia. The coronavirus pandemic and its fallout were on the agenda. And, so was climate change. Officials released a closing statement on Sunday. We begin with this report from CGTN’s Jacob Greaves.

Joining the panel:

  • Vladimir Golstein heads the Slavic Studies department at Brown University.
  • Klaus Larres is a professor of history and International Affairs at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 
  • Qinduo Xu is a Senior Fellow at the Pangoal Institution and host of CGTN’s Dialogue Weekend
  • Robert Hormats is Managing Director at Tiedemann Advisors and a former U.S. Under Secretary of State.
